You're telling me I have to wait until January 10th, 2013 to see what happens next, and you end the episode like that?
Traditionally, I start this with Person of Interest, but not today, not after that. Scandal needs to win some serious awards, starting with - ironically - Guillerno Diaz's portrayal of Huck. Talk about a complex, deeply layered character. All of you who didn't trust his girlfriend, I doff my hat to ye, because I thought her ready acceptance of his "quirkiness" was simply due to her drug problems. Not only did she turn out to be a killer spy, but she's even better than Huck. I did NOT see that coming.
And when she massacred that family he likes to watch...*shakes heads*.
Supreme Court Justice Verna Thornton sold Liv down the river. I didn't really see that coming because it didn't make a whole lot of sense. Thornton is terminally ill; she's on borrowed time even as we speak. So one way or another, she's going to be replaced.
Cyrus and James continue to be my favorite couple, with James becoming more bad-ass in every episode.
For additional great commentary, read this Racialicious article here. The most recent episode is not currently available on Hulu for some reason, but when it is...we shall return.
Carter, Carter, Carter. Last week's episode had more Carter screen time, including some more flirting with her new love interest, and Reese giving the obligatory "he better not hurt her speech", while revealing that he and Finch happen to keep a very close eye on her...including listening in on her dates (up to a point, of course).
Here's my beef: it all came across forced and perfunctory. I felt the writers shoved all that in there to shut people like me up.
In the last season, when Carter opened the trunk of her car to show Reese the weapons she carries with her, and he said, "A woman after my own heart", that was chemistry. That came across naturally.
And that is precisely why I think Season 2 is doing it's damnedest to try keep Carter on the Token Fringe; she's there to shut us up but she's mainly an errand girl, she's been given a poorly cast love interest who sees 45 seconds or less of screen time each episode, we've been given no more flashbacks from her military background, and though we know she has a son, we have seen him since Season 1 - did anybody else notice that?
I'm still waiting...and you all already know how I feel about waiting.
